Our theme for this year’s festivities, Dreams and Challenges of Asian Pacific Americans, speaks to the many generations of Asian Pacific Americans who worked hard to overcome economic hardship, racism and other barriers in their pursuit of the American dream.

My grandfather died when I was 12, but I remember the sorrow of my mother. Even now, she’s an old lady, but when she speaks about her father, she looks young. A love like that is undefeated, you know?

Jon Bon Jovi

Freddy Adu
I’ve worked hard and tried to approach my career with as much honesty and integrity as possible. I’ve also had many blessings along the way and feel very fortunate to have a career that speaks so much to my soul.

Soha Ali Khan
The power of literature does not lie in resonance with the particular but the way that the particular speaks to a broader, more universal truth.
Clint Smith
On telly, there’s been a move towards entertainment – with some very high-powered, fast-moving dramas. Then we have the Internet, where we get our information but it’s all in bite-size pieces. I think the documentary, as a form, actually speaks to what’s missing.
Beeban Kidron
Trump is like a Shakespearean ‘fool’: he seems crass because he speaks the truth.
Ann Coulter
We know that when a woman speaks truth to power, there will be attempts to put her down… I’m not going to go anywhere.

Dick Cheney
Our trials and our times of pain get the most recognition, but ‘Straight Outta Compton’ speaks to triumph. When it’s doubtful, when nobody is on your side, when your back is against the wall, you triumph and make it through. Showing growth through movies promotes growth.
O’Shea Jackson, Jr.
When I first read the scenes I got to audition, I just could tell there was obviously something there. The writing speaks for itself, but also it’s just the fact that ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is such an amazing story. I had never read the book before I auditioned.
Madeline Brewer
When I do an action thing, it speaks louder than the things that I’ve done that are dramatic and comedy. Actually, if you look at my resume, I have just as much comedic things as dramas, and I have far less action things than all of the other things, but I’m kind of defined as an action person.
Michael Jai White
Since I’d developed this fear of not remembering my lines, I took ‘Mulholland Drive’ as a test for myself. It was a long monologue: no one else speaks.
Lee Grant
Pre-‘Tokyo Drift,’ I was like: ‘Am I gonna play Yakuza #1 and Chinese Waiter #2 for the rest of my life? Is America even ready for an Asian face that speaks English, that doesn’t do Kung Fu?’
Sung Kang

I don’t think there will ever be a band that compares to Pantera. In my book, they are the icon metal band of all time. Their catalog speaks for itself.
Ivan Moody
Hip-hop is the streets. Hip-hop is a couple of elements that it comes from back in the days… that feel of music with urgency that speaks to you. It speaks to your livelihood and it’s not compromised. It’s blunt. It’s raw, straight off the street – from the beat to the voice to the words.
People will tell you for years whatever you have to say isn’t important at all. So when you have someone who breaks the mold and speaks up – and you see and identify with that – they become your hero.

You can’t ever create defensively. You just have to create the next thing that really speaks to you.
Marti Noxon
It’s useless to criticize things that people love and something that speaks to them.
Kaui Hart Hemmings
My uncle is so funny – Don Vito. He was always fat with the craziest voice. Dude, he barely speaks English; it’s just full-blown jibber-jabber. It’s so funny to watch on TV because you really need subtitles because you can’t understand him.
Bam Margera
He who speaks without modesty will find it difficult to make his words good.
Like, I just feel like the way a man speaks to a woman – the way that people speak to each other – it’s a respect thing.

Brian Tyree Henry
Sometimes in the mainstream movies, a character who is from the South is portrayed by a person who looks like a South Indian but speaks in fake accent.
Firstly you must always implicitly obey orders, without attempting to form any opinion of your own regarding their propriety. Secondly, you must consider every man your enemy who speaks ill of your king; and thirdly you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.
Horatio Nelson
I want to create a body of work that is entertaining and speaks to people for a long time. Longer than my life span.
Jack O’Connell
It’s live television. People make mistakes and Steve Harvey was very gracious to apologize. I accept his apology and I think it speaks a lot about his character.
Pia Wurtzbach
I think that’s something that we as black people in this country have been robbed of. I compare it to my brother’s wife, who is Hispanic. She was born in America but her parents are from Honduras. She speaks Spanish. She knows the culture. But most black people, we were robbed of that. We don’t know our heritage.
Eric Reid
Especially when I’m nervous, my mind is running a mile a minute. My ADHD speaks for me before I can speak for me.
One thing that sticks in my mind is that jazz means freedom and openness. It’s a music that, although it developed out of the African American experience, speaks more about the human experience than the experience of a particular people.

When God speaks, oftentimes His voice will call for an act of courage on our part.
Charles Stanley
The government must adopt a rights-based approach that speaks to the needs and aspirations of surrogate mothers, children born out of surrogacy, and all individuals who want access to altruistic surrogacy services.
Kapil Sibal
Nonfiction speaks to the head. Fiction speaks to the heart. Poetry speaks to the soul. It’s the essence of beauty. The essence of pain. It pleases the eye and the ear.
Ellen Hopkins
Here in America, money is something everyone can have, and because Trump poured cement with blue collars when he was a young man, he knows the vernacular; he speaks that language. In fact, he was probably much more comfortable with them than he is with the aristocrats, who are his financial peers.
Gavin McInnes
The euphemistically named CropLife America speaks for the pesticide industry.
Michael Pollan
The work that lasts over time is the work which still speaks to us when all contemporary interest in that work is extinct.
Jeanette Winterson
Ancelotti speaks a lot with his players, creates a very close-knit atmosphere, and the Real Madrid dressing room was very sad when he left.
Toni Kroos
‘Faithfully’ speaks to me. It’s about a guy who’s busy with his work, always on the road, but I’m still completely into you. If you just hold on, I’ll completely give myself to you. Just stick along for the ride.
Myles Garrett
I actually did a lot of interviews with Benjamin Bratt, and I learned a lot about him in all of those 60 something interviews that we did, because it was a junket. He speaks very well, and I learned that from him.
Anthony Gonzalez
We can’t get at crime unless we know what language it speaks. Otherwise, we are just suppressing the cough, not curing the disease.
Greg Boyle

David Archuleta
Making fun of people’s looks is something that children do – mean children – and, in fact, linguists have determined that Trump actually speaks like a 3rd grader.
Faith Salie
Historical grammar is a study of how, say, modern English developed from Middle English, and how that developed from Early and Old English, and how that developed from Germanic, and that developed from what’s called Proto-Indo-European, a source system that nobody speaks, so you have to try to reconstruct it.
Noam Chomsky
Success is a funny thing. It means different things to different people. For me, I am always pleased when people connect to our brand. It means we are executing in a manner that speaks to a wide variety of businesses.
John Varvatos
Herbert Hoover was a man of genuine, fine character, but he lacked practical political sense. And he couldn’t bend and shift and change with the requirements of the time. And he was a ruined President, because he was such a, I think, stiff-backed ideologue. And I think that speaks volumes about his character.
Robert Dallek
People say ‘Why would you learn Dutch? Nobody speaks it. Why not French?’ Even the Dutch say that to me! I say because I want to live here, I think it’s only common courtesy that I speak the language.
Anthony Geary
As a senator, Obama denounced the Big Brother provisions of Bush’s post-9/11 Patriot Act, particularly its sections enabling the state to spy on Americans without their knowledge. After taking power, Obama acquired his other face. That face speaks far less, but when it does, it justifies Bush’s policies.
Neil Macdonald
You lose or you win the fight – and anything in life – in your mind. I can look at how the person walks, how he speaks, his expressions. It’s a wisdom. Eyes are the mirror of the soul. So you can read a lot.
Wladimir Klitschko
It’s a pretty sure thing that the player’s bat is what speaks loudest when it’s contract time, but there are moments when the glove has the last word.
Brooks Robinson

The Conservative Party absolutely can be a party that speaks to mining communities in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, and communities based around heavy industry in Yorkshire and County Durham, Wales and Cornwall as well as urban areas like London.
James Cleverly
Our warriors and their families don’t ask for much. But there are a few things we’d like. A commander-in-chief who speaks of winning wars and not merely ending wars, calls the enemy by its name, and draws red lines carefully but enforces them ruthlessly.
Tom Cotton
My brand is a demography-breaker. It speaks to all homemakers and women from all walks of life and all across society.
Sandra Lee
Country music was the music I was brought up on. It’s the music that’s closest to my heart and the music that speaks to me the most, and it’s always been a big influence on my own songwriting.
Teddy Thompson
I was very clear that I wanted to keep ‘Thor’ out of the rest of the Marvel universe for no less than the first six issues. And the success of the book, I think, speaks well to that decision.
J. Michael Straczynski
I appreciate actors who work very hard to get at the truth of the character they’re playing. That speaks to me, and I try to protect that process because I value the focus and intention behind it.
Marc Platt
Everybody at home speaks mandarin except me.
Rupert Murdoch
I think that’s a hallmark of a really good story that it has readers that it speaks to more than others.

Ted Cruz
I’ve come to learn that music speaks for itself.
Michael McDonald
Nobody speaks German outside of Germany.
Till Lindemann
There are lots of actors who insist on speaking the lines themselves, and you hear the same thing from directors and the audience, but I don’t think it’s worth getting het up about. I think it makes more sense to use someone who speaks that country’s language: that’s what voice actors are for.
Tadanobu Asano
German accents and Hassidic accents aren’t that romantic. They’re more harsh. Although Hebrew, when spoken by certain people, sounds beautiful. There’s this beautiful woman I know who speaks Hebrew, and when she speaks, it’s so attractive. Maybe it’s who’s speaking it.
Janeane Garofalo
Ancelotti is internationally oriented and speaks English. Why would he not be successful with a club like Bayern? He would be a good fit for a Bundesliga side.
Toni Kroos
Anger is one of those emotions that doesn’t follow the letter of the law. It speaks before it thinks. It rears up on its hind legs and charges.
Lynn Coady
Shaw is like a train. One just speaks the words and sits in one’s place. But Shakespeare is like bathing in the sea – one swims where one wants.
Vivien Leigh
Chicago Bears tradition speaks for itself.
Brian Urlacher
Ojibwe prophecy speaks of a time during the seventh fire when our people will have a choice between two paths. The first path is well-worn and scorched. The second path is new and green. It is our choice as communities and as individuals how we will proceed.
Winona LaDuke
I am no fashion diva – I grew up on the beaches in South Africa and am a nature girl that spends a lot of time outdoors. Fashion speaks to me through an occasion.
Tanit Phoenix
Love can be understood only ‘from the inside,’ as a language can be understood only by someone who speaks it, as a world can be understood only by someone who lives in it.
Robert C. Solomon
When I first encountered the ‘Sigma Force’ novels – long before I became friends with Jim Rollins – a bookseller told me that these stories were about ‘geeks with guns.’ While not entirely accurate, that’s pretty close to the mark, and that really speaks to me.
Jonathan Maberry
I don’t have anything to prove because I’ve already validated myself and my work speaks for itself.
BeBe Zahara Benet
In accordance to the way that Benn speaks, he is not educated. Sure, he’s educated to a certain extent, but under different circumstances he would be a bouncer on some door in the West End and he’d have three kids from three different women… I am a superior person to that. I have finer points.
Chris Eubank Sr.
As a mentor, you have to be willing to put yourself in your mentee’s shoes to understand their struggles that they deal with. It’s not supposed to turn into a pity party by any means, but empathy speaks volumes to a mentee in need of help rather than forced sympathy.
Tobias Harris
He that speaketh against his own reason speaks against his own conscience, and therefore it is certain that no man serves God with a good conscience who serves him against his reason.
Jeremy Taylor
I like to be so good, that no-one can have anything to say about me; my dancing speaks for itself.
Oti Mabuse
He’s not a coach who speaks to you every day. Wenger has spoken to me two or three times. He’s told me he’s very impressed by how I train and how I’m a disciplined character.
Granit Xhaka
Your internal dialogue has got to be different from what you say. And, you know, in film, hopefully that registers and speaks volumes. It’s always the unspoken word and what’s happening behind someone’s eyes that makes it so rich.
Viola Davis
Comedy Central is what these young people are viewing. The network speaks to their audience, which is saying, ‘Give me fast jokes. Give me party stories and party language.’

My music speaks of warriors. It speaks of women being kings and this sense of pride of being more, even though you have less.
Dawn Richard
I don’t speak for all Libertarians any more than Sean Penn speaks for all Democrats.
Penn Jillette
I might be more fluent in Swedish than I am in Spanish. My wife speaks it to our kids, and they’re fluent so I hear it all the time, so I’ve got that under my belt.
Will Ferrell
I feel like acting is something I’ve been working towards longer. And it would be great to win a Grammy, of course, but for some reason, an Oscar speaks more to me.
Vanessa Hudgens
Part of the popularity with Louis Farrakhan has less to do with the content of his message and more to do with the form that he portrays himself – as being a free black person who speaks what is on his mind with boldness and fearlessness. Who is willing to pay the consequences.
Cornel West
I set the bar high because I don’t want to do just any other show just to keep working. I want to do something special that means something to people and speaks to them. Those kinds of opportunities don’t come along all the time!
Idina Menzel
Just as a flower which seems beautiful and has color but no perfume, so are the fruitless words of the man who speaks them but does them not.
John Dewey
I’m basically just a normal girl from West London who speaks from her heart and who loves music.
Rita Ora
I’m going to be a fashion icon in a minute. I’m not going to do it in a corny manner. I have a voice that speaks for a whole other market – not just black people, but high fashion urban people. I mix street wear with high fashion. It’s never been seen before.
ASAP Rocky
Obama provides hope. Whether he does anything, the hope that he provides for a nation and outside of America is enough. Just being who he is. You’re the first black president. If he speaks on any issue or anything, he should be left alone.
I feel I have nothing to prove at all, my scoring rate in La Liga speaks for itself.
Diego Forlan
The only way a ventriloquist speaks differently is that he forgoes using his or her lips, and learns to reproduce sounds using the tongue, upper palate, and teeth only. Those ‘difficult’ letters are B, F, M, P, V, W, and Y.
Jeff Dunham
Auschwitz speaks against even a right to self-determination that is enjoyed by all other peoples because one of the preconditions for the horror, besides other, older urges, was a strong and united Germany.

Anything by Lorrie Moore speaks to a certain kind of person.
Jami Attenberg

Selah Louise Marley
It really is true that an orator is simply a good man who speaks well.
George McGovern
If I feel like it’s a well-written script and if it speaks to me, it’s something I want to do. I usually rely on my instincts when it comes to a script.
Michael Ealy
I think the notion of traditional anchor is fading away – the all-knowing, all-seeing person who speaks from on high. I don’t think the audience really buys that anymore. As a viewer, I know I don’t buy it.
Anderson Cooper
At its very best, the Western model speaks for itself. It’s the model that put food on the table. It’s the refrigerators. It put a man on the moon.
Dambisa Moyo
It always trips me out that America, the most powerful and magnificent nation in the history of the world, whose might was built by immigrants from all over the world, only speaks one language.
Cheech Marin
Lara Croft is such a strong individual, she’s very driven, she doesn’t need a man, she’s speaks her own mind, and that she’s in control of her own life. It’s a lot of what women want and have.
Jan de Bont
Vivid images are like a beautiful melody that speaks to you on an emotional level. It bypasses your logic centers and even your intellect and goes to a different part of the brain.

My body of work speaks for itself. I don’t need anybody in the media to tell me I’m a good defensive player.
P. J. Tucker
We’ve got to think long-term too because I don’t think Trump speaks to a lot of young people.
Dan Crenshaw
All cultures are different. Some commit genocide. Some are uniquely peaceful. Some frequent bathhouses in groups. Some don’t show each other the soles of their shoes or like pictures taken of them. Some have enormous hunting festivals or annual stretches when nobody speaks. Some don’t use electricity.
Casey Affleck
Surrealism is my stamp. I have a post graduate diploma in theatre and I was introduced to this concept and it stuck by me because it speaks of the hypocritical nature of the reality. We are something more inside and I want to portray the pluralities in thought.
Tanikella Bharani
Every time Maradona speaks it makes life difficult for everyone and there are those of us who don’t agree with that, not when he talks about football, but rather about people.
Mario Kempes
I think my play speaks for itself.
Marcus Smart
Hamas is a terror organization with a covenant that speaks about the elimination of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. They are not partners for negotiations.
Ariel Sharon
It’s one thing to be writing in South or Latin America, where, except for Brazil, every country, however small and hard to find on a map, speaks Spanish, but quite another to be writing in, say, Hungary, a landlocked nation of 10 million people, with a language that very few people outside Hungary can read or speak.
Michael Korda
It’s rare to find an Indian who speaks Chinese. It’s rare to find a Chinese who can speak any of the Indian languages. Neither of them at the trading level – I want to repeat this, at the trading level – can speak English, either.
Shiv Nadar
Toni Morrison was a big influence on my work since I was a teenager, what she did with English. I joke that I think she speaks 20 Englishes simultaneously, that she knows how to do that.
Robin Coste Lewis
‘Dirt Road Diaries,’ in my mind, is a perfect country guy song. It speaks to the hard-working guy, and I’m excited for the fans to hear that one.
Luke Bryan
I first went to Barcelona in 1975 after university, and I stayed for three years. I learnt Catalan because that’s what everyone speaks in the mountains. They speak English to foreigners, but what people say to each other is much more important than what they say to you.
Colm Toibin
I wrote ‘Ain’t It Cool? Hollywood’s Redheaded Stepchild Speaks Out,’ because in doing hundreds and hundreds of interviews over the past six and a half years, I was tired of the story being half told or a third told or erroneously told.
Harry Knowles
I’ve learned through my own relationship with God that He’s not expecting me to be perfect; He wants me to do my best to be in His will and take steps of faith as He leads me, through His Word and the promptings He speaks to my heart.
Joyce Meyer
Reggae music is a music of integrity; reggae’s consciousness was built on a message. My music speaks of love, equality and spirituality, and I would hope that one finds this integrity in my music.
Stephen Marley
From my father’s point of view, without a thought for self, a true patriot stands up against the stones of condemnation and speaks for those who are given no real voice in the halls of justice or the halls of government.
Thomas Steinbeck
Very often a job will come along that speaks to the place you’re in as a person at that very moment. And usually once I’ve done it I feel like that part is over.
Martha Plimpton
There is a great deal of cyberpunk that I admire, especially the work of William Gibson which I think is excellent. Somehow he speaks from his own heart and cyber punk is what comes out.
Robert Sheckley
I noticed that what you’re wearing is a representation of yourself and speaks for you before you do.
I’m always for the person who speaks their mind.
Kathy Najimy
I think I’ve got to go back to ‘Someone to Watch Over Me.’ I think it’s a perfectly written song. I really do. I think it’s one of the great songs in the American Songbook, and it speaks to love in its simplest and purest form.
Rob McClure
We need a foreign policy which responds to challenges like forced marriage, and which speaks to the particular needs of women and girls at risk of being sold into slavery.
Emily Thornberry
He that speaks much, is much mistaken.
Benjamin Franklin
A lot of people have said that I’ve got a voice that speaks to children. I think I’ve got a natural naivety to me. I’m childish.
Geri Halliwell
Yes, I’m half Italian. So my grandfather speaks heavy Italian… and I couldn’t understand a word he said.
Paulo Costanzo
One thing that really bothers me is when a young black person speaks or leads a conversation, and afterward a white person says, ‘You’re really articulate.’
Maverick Carter
People had boxed me in as a ‘pretty girl with followers that’s rapping,’ but I think my project and the work speaks for itself.
I’m special, in a way that is good. I don’t have to explain ‘special.’ There is no definition for special. Special speaks for itself.
Bernard Hopkins
My record speaks for itself.
Rob Ford
Some museum boards think that choosing an architect can be reduced to a science, but it comes down to a matter of taste, pure and simple. A shortlist of prospective designers speaks volumes about the likely outcome. If the candidates’ styles are too divergent, the search committee doesn’t know what it wants.
Martin Filler
Elections are a competition with only one winner. Giving more money to the opponent every time one speaks on behalf of a favored candidate discourages the speech that triggers the matching funds.
Bradley A. Smith
It’s good to have someone who speaks your language in everyday life, especially for me, who does not speak English so well.
A man speaks only when driven to speech by something outside himself – like, for instance, he can’t find any clean socks.
Jean Kerr
I’m just first of all looking for a part that’s well written and speaks to me.
J. K. Simmons
The annual ‘Forbes’ Billionaires List speaks volumes about the movement and concentration of wealth across industries and geographies.
David Lichtenstein
If you are working in a publicly subsidized building, then you have a responsibility to deliver truly interesting, risky, innovative, even provocative work. Work that speaks to your audience in many resonant ways. The priority is less about the financial rewards.
Marianne Elliott
I’m trying to talk to my kids in Japanese, because I’m not a pro English speaker. My wife speaks to them in English. That’s her first language. I don’t want my kids to feel the same as me when I was studying English. It was so frustrating.
Music is something so mystical, so unexplainably a thing you cannot put in the rules or boundaries, you know? It speaks about our feelings about questions of life and death. It goes absolutely beyond any kind of rules.
Andris Nelsons
I like to remember happy memories from my childhood growing up as a girl in Blackburn and while this mostly speaks true, there were also deeply dark and painful days when I experienced shocking racial and cultural bullying.
A. J. Odudu
When you are a dancer your body speaks, my body can express itself.
Shakti Mohan
I’d just like to see a role for women where someone who isn’t traditionally attractive is not portraying the best friend. You know, the character that only speaks in questions. ‘Gee, are you gonna go out with him? Do you think I look fat?’
Martha Plimpton
Music – it speaks to everyone. Music speaks to everyone on so many different levels.
My impression is that American policy speaks not of antagonism but rather partnership.
Gerhard Schroder
I have a very lively and colourful show. It’s two hours of hits and the music speaks for itself.
Rod Stewart
Playing the Beethoven symphonies, for example, is a consummate experience for a musician because Beethoven speaks so directly to who we are as people.
Joshua Bell
People are afraid, and when people are afraid, when their pie is shrinking, they look for somebody to hate. They look for somebody to blame. And a real leader speaks to anxiety and to fear and allays those fears, assuages anxiety.
Henry Louis Gates
The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action.
I think my track record speaks for myself… I have been endorsed by the African Union, but I am a prosecutor for 121 states parties and this is what I intend to be until the end of my mandate.
Fatou Bensouda
I know that I’m not a criminal. People say that, but my music speaks for itself. And I believe in my music.
R. Kelly
Allegri is a coach who speaks a lot.
Douglas Costa
Coach Wooden, when he speaks, you listen. I’ve taken a lot of things from him and his little blue book because to him, it’s not just about basketball, it’s about life as well.
Kevin Love
Music is like a conversation. One person says one thing that speaks with a harmonica, with a bass, with a drum. They’re all conversating, and we’re just trying to find a way to make conversation rather than blah, blah, blah. But it’s not really so hard a thing to do if you know the way to approach it.
Stephen Marley
I’ve lived my whole life in the life – I’ve lived my whole life doing the thing, I’ve been doing my own thing. And I think my life speaks volumes about what one must do.
The only problem was that I couldn’t communicate with Dario. He speaks Italian and I don’t. We had a translator the whole time. I just felt that something was lost with the go between. He was a delightful man, but I wish we could have spoken the same language.
Kim Hunter
STREET by 50 is all about giving our fans the finest music experience we possibly can. The response to the limited edition colors so far speaks for itself – the fans want the opportunity to match their headphones to their personal style, and we definitely want to make sure to give them what they want.
Curtis Jackson
The trouble with ghostwriting is that it raises the issue of whether the president is in a state of diminished responsibility for what he says. Does he actually grasp the implications of the words he speaks?
Jonathan Raban
When he speaks to you he speaks with an earnest vibe and an earnest energy.
Dwayne Johnson
Unless one always speaks the truth, one cannot find God Who is the soul of truth.
If you believe that there is a God, then you know that God doesn’t show his face. He speaks to you, you feel him, but you’ve never seen him.
Hard work speaks for itself.
Rajon Rondo
For me, it is essential to have the inner peace and serenity of prayer in order to listen to the silence of God, which speaks to us, in our personal life and the history of our times, of the power of love.
Adolfo Perez Esquivel
It is love that heals and music is the one thing that speaks to all our souls.
Liz Mitchell
Donald Trump speaks his mind. If you like it or you don’t like it, at least you know where he stands.
Fabio Lanzoni
The great power the president has is that he is the most prominent person in the biggest media event on the planet. He has the attention of the nation and the world. When he speaks, everybody listens.
David Frum
Beauty is the oracle that speaks to us all.
Luis Barragan
My point is there’s a hidden Scotland in anyone who speaks the Northern Ireland speech. It’s a terrific complicating factor, not just in Northern Ireland, but Ireland generally.
Seamus Heaney
Trump is not some random, embittered person in a parking lot – he’s the president of the United States. By virtue of his office, he speaks for the country.
George T. Conway III
My record speaks for itself.
Harry Redknapp
I speak from the heart. Certain people follow lyricists and people that put words on a dictionary together, and this and that. I’m more of a rapper that speaks how I feel. I just tell it how it is.
French Montana
I’m 27, and I have no idea what I am doing half the time. I am just trying the best I can, and I think that speaks to a lot of other women out there.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
I just make the music and then the music speaks for itself.
Roddy Ricch
I was a fan of the Marx Brothers. One of them had this character where he pretended not to be able to talk, but then he wrote this autobiography called ‘Harpo Speaks!’ He wrote about how he quit school at nine years old to become a professional.
Nile Rodgers
I speak Hindi fluently because my mother speaks only in Hindi and Urdu.
Esha Gupta
On the day of the show, I sit down with someone that speaks very good English and someone who speaks the local language very well and work out what I’m going to say.
Phil Collins
I realised a long time ago that instrumental music speaks a lot more clearly than English, Spanish, Yiddish, Swahili, any other language. Pure melody goes outside time.
Carlos Santana
Even though the white-haired politician has no colorful wardrobe, after he speaks… you want to hug him. Why? Because what Bernie Sanders says feels like the truth. The unbridled truth. And he says it loud.
John Densmore
There’s a viewpoint that says, ‘I can fight for minorities, and I can fight for women,’ and if you get that, you make up a vast majority of the voting block, and you win. And white males have been left aside a little bit in the politics of who speaks to them.
Sean Duffy
In my world, history comes down to language and art. No one cares much about what battles were fought, who won them and who lost them – unless there is a painting, a play, a song or a poem that speaks of the event.
Theodore Bikel
Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.
Malcolm Muggeridge
In France, everyone speaks French ’cause they think it’s cool. Gives ’em, gives ’em an excuse to smoke.
Scott Thompson
There is no point having team meetings where no one speaks because you don’t learn anything.
Joe Root
We assume, to begin with, that the individual is at least as complex in his internal structure as the language is which he speaks – otherwise, how could he speak a language which is complex?
Kenneth L. Pike
My track record speaks for itself.
Billy Butler
If your computer speaks English, it was probably made in Japan.
Alan Perlis
Mr. Trump speaks for Mr. Trump, and his tweets speak for themselves. And he’s very clear about what those tweets say.
Corey Lewandowski
When someone speaks to an introvert, her brain responds with a high level of activity. It is as if several lights start flashing on a control panel.
Laurie Helgoe
Jesus was not born in a manger in central Pennsylvania. He was a man of color. And the fact that we have represented him for centuries literally as a white man speaks to the entire history of white supremacy.
Tim Wise
The music speaks for itself. You either like it or you don’t, or you’re somewhere in between. That doesn’t change whether I’m in the band or not.
Bun E. Carlos
If you’re going through a difficult time, and there’s a piece of music that speaks to you – be it musically or lyrically or both – you are almost always able to access that music. You’re always able to sit down with it.
Ben Gibbard
Klopp knows how to motivate players. He speaks to them individually, gets their confidence up, makes them believe and grow in quality. He makes his players feel happy. And they then take that happiness onto the field. He builds that into them.
Lothar Matthaus
I’m not a follower. I’m a leader. And anyone who speaks their mind is always criticised.
Tyler, The Creator
I am no theologian. I am a layman. I am among those who are preached to, and who listen. It is not for me to preach. I should not willingly forego being a listener, a man who reads the Gospels and then listens to what others say that our Lord meant. But sometimes a listener speaks out, and listens to his own voice.
Haniel Long
My success rate speaks for itself.
Abby Lee Miller
I think the legacy left behind by ‘Battlestar’ speaks for itself. I thought that these avid fans, most of whom were skeptical at first… to turn them into a fan of ‘Caprica’ as well is a daunting task, a big challenge.
Esai Morales
In my opinion, that’s one of the hardest things to do in songwriting: crafting a song that speaks to you but, at its core, is a simple concept.
Chris Young
My congressional record speaks for itself, and my ability to build coalitions locally, nationally and across the aisles in Congress is transparent.
Danny K. Davis
Graphic Design, which fulfills aesthetic needs, complies with the laws of form and exigencies of two-dimensional space; which speaks in semiotics, sans-serifs, and geometrics; which abstracts, transforms, translates, rotates, dilates, repeats, mirrors, groups, and regroups, is not good design if it is irrelevant.
Paul Rand
I think it speaks a lot to Coach Kidd and my teammates to trust me as a rookie to make plays down the stretch. When they put that confidence in you, it’s hard not to try to make plays.
Malcolm Brogdon
What I find is that when young people find a brand they relate to, that they feel speaks to them, they want it in every format they can get.
Elaine Welteroth
I think my body language and how I carry myself speaks for me as a person.
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
Movie dialogue is movie dialogue. It can sound real, but no one speaks that way.
Brian Helgeland
In Chicago, you have an absence of strong family units, and that absence gets filled by gangs. You have a failure in the school system, after-school programs and other social programs to help keep kids off the streets. Amnesty International speaks to that in some way, by keeping these issues in the forefront.
Lupe Fiasco
Speaks cheerful English and in the past has written this language with a paintbrush that talks.
Jimmy Breslin
It is said that Obama speaks ‘professorially,’ a fact that understates the quickness and agility of his mind.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
For better or worse, when Sen. Inhofe speaks, the Republican Party follows. And when the Republican Party follows, it is impossible to get real work done in the Congress.
Bernie Sanders
My production company, what we are trying to do is I’m trying to create content that speaks to me, and it’s not one color. It’s not one size fits all.
Laurence Fishburne
I just have a belief that when there is a rare script out there that speaks to you, you have to stick with it. You have to.
Heather Matarazzo
Lennon has an amazing ability to think before she speaks. She doesn’t have to constantly be talking. She just thinks, and when she speaks, it’s thoughtful. She’s very calm. I’m trying to learn that from her.
Jessica St. Clair
Looting speaks to a lack of economic opportunities – frankly, we all would loot, too, if our families’ continued survival depended on it.
Sarah Parcak
LeBron is a role model in that sense. Because for him to be as good as he is and how high up he is on the totem pole, to still care about Akron, Ohio, that is tremendous and speaks volumes.
Kyle Kuzma
Every historian with professional standards speaks or writes what he believes to be true.
Samuel E. Morison
All of the biggest technological inventions created by man – the airplane, the automobile, the computer – says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness.
Mark Kennedy
Its roots are in American Negro culture, which is part of the whole country’s heritage, but the dance speaks to everyone… Otherwise, it wouldn’t work.
Alvin Ailey
I can carry a brand. I did it in the UK with an entire brand basically built around me, and my in-ring work speaks for itself.
Pete Dunne
A quotation in a speech, article or book is like a rifle in the hands of an infantryman. It speaks with authority.
Brendan Behan
Every player in every team speaks to each other in order to improve the quality on the pitch – that communication is necessary.
I think people assume I only do light things because of the movies that are like ‘Hairspray’ and ‘John Tucker Must Die.’ But I think it’s all just based on material that I really like and that speaks to me.
Brittany Snow
My son has autism, and I founded the government relations department at Autism Speaks.
Elizabeth Emken
I’m my own judge, and I hope my track record speaks to that.
Amul Thapar
Money speaks in Utah.
Robert Redford
Music that speaks of politics is less listened to than the music of partying, but it’s still there.
Gregory Porter
I’ve always been shy and that’s partly why I chose a life behind the lens. I like people to look at my work and hopefully it speaks for itself.
Bruce Weber
Duke as a program speaks for itself. Coach K is the greatest coach of all time.
RJ Barrett
The name Minted speaks to the freshness of our design – the fact that we are receiving thousands of new designs each week and selling freshly minted winners from our design competitions.
Mariam Naficy
I’ll have to have a room of my own. Nobody could sleep with Dick. He wakes up during the night, switches on the lights, speaks into his tape recorder.
Pat Nixon
Women speak because they wish to speak, whereas a man speaks only when driven to speak by something outside himself like, for instance, he can’t find any clean socks.
Jean Kerr
Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.
Every so often you read a play and a character just speaks to you – almost seems to speak through you, in fact.
Alan Rickman
Faith: Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel.
Ambrose Bierce
Some of the Junior Boys’ textures may be borrowed from synthpop but, formally, their songs would be impossible without twenty years of the rave discontinuum. And where synthpop was self-consciously European, the Junior Boys have pioneered an electronic Pop that speaks in a Canadian accent.
Mark Fisher
Rock is young music, it is youth oriented. It just speaks for a generation.
Ruben Blades
Music has influenced my life and is one of the most treasured things for me. It speaks a universal language and for me, it is extremely important to stay connected to it.
Ananya Birla
Past performance speaks a tremendous amount about one’s ability and likelihood for success.
Mark Spitz
It was weird being a kid in the Midlands where outside everybody is white and speaks in a certain way but when you go home nobody speaks that way and everybody looks like you. Every day was this weird threshold crossing.
Lenny Henry
I have a long-standing relationship with Autism Speaks. I’ve been supporting them for many, many years now.
Nikki Reed
The beauty we love is very silent. It smiles softly to itself, but never speaks.
Richard Le Gallienne
There’s nothing I hate more than someone who speaks in the draft room with absolute conviction, but they have nothing to back it up.
Theo Epstein
Every one speaks well of his own heart, but no one dares speak well of his own mind.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
To be in a situation where you have another year on your deal and the team still wants to extend that – they see your value, they want you in the building, and they want to build around you – that speaks volumes. That’s very, very important to a player like me.
Malcolm Jenkins
When he to whom one speaks does not understand, and he who speaks himself does not understand, that is metaphysics.
Even Echo speaks not on these radiant moors.
Bryan Procter
I plan on suing all of the Left wing terrorists and tech tyrants who are trying to shut me down simply because I am a Conservative Jewish woman who speaks truth about Islam.
Laura Loomer
Around my house, I won’t even speak to my family unless they first address me by my official Berzerker name, Godred Crovan, Victor of Sky-Hill and Ruler of Man and the Isles. And now that I think of it, that’s probably why nobody speaks to me unless it’s time to feed the dogs or take out the garbage.
Zakk Wylde
In comic strips, the person on the left always speaks first.
George Carlin
No one really speaks for the president other than the president.
Margaret Brennan
To be censored is one sure way of knowing you have been taken dead seriously. It also speaks to the continuing power of the printed word, almost fifteen hundred years after that amazing invention.
Felice Picano
It speaks to the incredible risk of doing business with the Islamic Republic of Iran if American companies have to turn to federally guaranteed funding mechanisms to support their business there.
Mike Pompeo
The Cabinet makes collective decision and when the Cabinet speaks it speaks with one voice.
James Cleverly
The voice of authority speaks not for the one but for the many; authority figures have a strong and rapid effect on social norms in part because they change our assumptions about what other people think.
Maria Konnikova
Put on the game tape. The game tape speaks volumes because I’m in live action, I’m out there making reads, going through progressions, redirection protection, signaling hot routes, getting the offense in and out of the right play.
Teddy Bridgewater
We’ve got so many different cultural groups in my family that I’ve had to learn to accommodate them in different ways. My father speaks different to my mum. My mum speaks different to my grandmother. Everybody speaks different, so you find you start tweaking your language to be more accessible to people.
Trevor Noah
I’m a confident, bubbly girl who speaks my mind.
Megan McKenna
Nothing is more untoward than a grown man tasking another with snapping a pic expressly so he can ‘flex the ‘fit.’ It’s tacky -self-aggrandizing – and speaks to an existential neediness typically reserved for failed actresses and phenomenally successful rappers.
Mary H.K. Choi
I could relate to Balu in the way he speaks, his mannerisms and how he cannot understand why such a big deal is being made when two people fall in love. It’s a fresh perspective of ‘Maro Charitra,’ something like what Anurag Kashyap did with Devdas in ‘Dev D.’
Varun Sandesh
Alcohol is barren. The words a man speaks in the night of drunkenness fade like the darkness itself at the coming of day.
Marguerite Duras
I like someone who has a strong personality, who speaks boldly and makes people uncomfortable sometimes.
Nikki Tamboli
M. J. was M. J. His body of work speaks for itself. We’ve seen his career, we’ve dissected his career and had the chance to watch it. That’s done.
B. J. Armstrong
I’m fluent in Spanish, so I can do a character that speaks Spanish.
Fabricio Werdum
A judgment about life has no meaning except the truth of the one who speaks last, and the mind is at ease only at the moment when everyone is shouting at once and no one can hear a thing.
Georges Bataille
I write to satisfy the story or poem or piece of fascinating research that speaks to me. To rub a sore, to resonate with joy, to answer a question no one else has satisfactorily answered for me.
Jane Yolen
There’s always difficulties and challenges in every life, I don’t care how much money you make, where you live… and that’s something this film speaks to.
Ryan Phillippe
Literature speaks with everyone individually – it is personal property that stays inside our heads. And nothing speaks to us as forcefully as a book, which expects nothing in return other than that we think and feel.
Herta Muller
There is great strength in vulnerability, as it takes courage to push through the fear and share one’s true self with others. In music, that vulnerability really speaks to listeners as it connects with their own hearts.
Anoushka Shankar
Unlike most politicians who speak only from their mind, Amar Singhji thinks and speaks both from his mind and heart.
Jaya Prada
The fact that that’s the difference between Mexicans and Cubans is pronounced. It’s so immediately recognizable, the way a Cuban speaks, the way a Cuban moves the hands.
Hector Elizondo
A writer just speaks from his heart, mind and soul. They are the conscience keepers of the society. They are the keepers of the soul of the society.
For an author to write as he speaks is just as reprehensible as the opposite fault, to speak as he writes; for this gives a pedantic effect to what he says, and at the same time makes him hardly intelligible.
Arthur Schopenhauer
To this congress the poet speaks not of peculiar and personal things, but of what in himself is most common, most anonymous, most fundamental, most true of all men.
Richard Wilbur
The view of how America speaks is reflected in our laws. And one of the laws is fair housing. It very clearly prohibits discrimination in the sale and rental of housing in America. It’s been a sad fact of American life that the practice in many communities has been quite the opposite.
Walter F. Mondale
Badhai Ho Badhai’ is about spreading love and happiness – and Kavita Chaudhry speaks of it in a gentle manner.
Satish Kaushik
John Hartson, he speaks fluent Welsh and has the tattoos all over him to prove his Welshness. But in my own world, no one is more Welsh than myself.
Craig Bellamy
It speaks truth when you listen to Bob Marley.
Rohan Marley
Magic speaks to the child in all of us. No matter how sophisticated we become, there’s still a part of us who wants to believe in an alternative reality, where we can defy the laws of nature.
Criss Angel
Marriage has a unique place because it speaks of an absolute faithfulness, a covenant between radically different persons, male and female; and so it echoes the absolute covenant of God with his chosen, a covenant between radically different partners.
Rowan Williams
Money talks. It starts rumors about careers and complicity and speaks of the tragedies and triumphs of our social lives.
Barbara Kruger
But the Bible speaks against it, and because the Bible speaks against it, we allow rampant sin including homosexuality and lying, and to me lying is just as b ad as homosexuality, and we’ve allowed this sin to run rampant in our nation.
Reggie White
Country music is the song that speaks to the American condition. It’s middle America. Eight out of 10 people. Maybe it’s not the No. 1 choice, but they listen to country.
Eric Church
Gerrard is quiet; if he speaks people listen. If he has something to say, it’s important and clever. He’s a hard worker, disciplined.
Sven-Goran Eriksson
For me it’s all about personal vision; is there something about a subject that uniquely speaks to me.
Leonard Nimoy
If I speak of Vienna it must be in the past tense, as a man speaks of a woman he has loved and who is dead.
Erich von Stroheim
In some ways I believe music is the more convincing communicator of ideas than words. For instance, we can hear of Kordaly and Bartok and recognise them as Hungarian, but very few of us speak Hungarian, but the music itself speaks to more people.
Leonard Slatkin
I think putting your fingerprints on life in general speaks more value than this game of basketball can speak.
George Hill
My father is just getting better and better, and that speaks so well of the way he approaches the work.
Domhnall Gleeson
Hamdi Ulukaya and Chobani have made the decision to feed 250,000 victims of the Somali famine. Their compassion speaks for itself, and is a shining example of how the business community can have an enormous positive impact on the world.
Amanda Lindhout
I prefer to be a great team not only on paper but also on the pitch. The pitch is the truth. The pitch speaks.
Antonio Conte
I am endorsing Barack Obama because he is a new kind of leader: he speaks with a different voice; he brings a new perspective and inspires a real excitement from the American people.
Amy Klobuchar
Both my parents are very emotional. My mom is not expressive, my father is more, and he speaks out more.
Sooraj Pancholi
My mom speaks English – she moved to England in the ’70s, so she’s fluent in English. We use to speak in Spanish when I was a kid all the time, me and my mom. But when I went to boarding school, I kind of lost it a little bit.
Ed Weeks
I’m kind of down for anything, as long as it’s an amazing script that speaks to me, so I’m just constantly reading and constantly looking.
Peyton List
My brother-in-law is an African-American cop who patrols a New Orleans suburban community. He speaks to me often of his perilous duty.
Mike Espy
